Strangely mine seems intermittent. I'll need to figure out if it's the wiring. I've ruled out the switch already :)

Your symptoms sound similar to mine, it worked when it felt like it.
From just looking at the picture of yours it is hard to tell but I believe there are brushes that can be replaced in my type, not sure about yours.
I haven't been able to take mine apart yet as it is not really "shed" weather up here just now. Too bloody cold.
Not sure if these are the type but it may be worth checking.

Thanks OMR. I've got to say though, for that price I wouldn't bother to rebuild a motor... I'd put it on one side for another day, just because I struggle to throw stuff away :)

Hi - I need to tackle my heater soon - mine works only on highest setting but it is very noisy - but it will always work - what do you reckon am I looking at a motor, switch or something else?

It's said the resistor has gone if it only works on the highest setting.
